Made by Hocking Glass, this pink oval Celery Bowl is in the beautiful Miss America pattern of Depression Glass. The pretty Diamond Pattern of Miss America is unmistakable. One of the most popular Depression Glass patterns, its rows of hobnail diamonds and rays in the bottom of the dish give it plenty of angles for the light to reflect and bounce. The color varies between the bowls offered here, as seen in the last photo, but the variation of color in Miss America is normal.
Production of this beloved, unmarked pattern, from 1935 to 1938, spanned the 1937 merger that changed Hocking to Anchor Hocking Glass.
This beautiful glass celery bowl measures 10-1/2 inches long and 6-1/2 inches wide. It is 1-1/8 inches deep.
Four bowls are offered here. Three of these were purchased from the same collection. One bowl has a long bubble in the glass at one end, and an inch long scratch on the back side. Another has an extra dollop of glass on the inner rim. All have the small indentations, creases, and an occasional bubble in the bottom that were formed in the processing. As is common in vintage glassware, there are expected surface scratches. There are no chips or cracks in any.
